Justin Bieber Keeps Apology Train Rolling On 'Ellen', But Needs To Keep In Mind That Actions Speak Louder Than Words — VIDEO
He's really sorry this time, everyone! That's the message Justin Bieber wants to send judging by his surprise appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Feb. 5. Justin Bieber explained on Ellen that he was not proud of some of the things he has done in the past. He said that he wanted to explain himself before moving forward, hence his much talked about Facebook apology video, where he described his past behavior as "arrogant" and "conceited." On Ellen, the "Never Say Never" singer said,
I just wanted to make the video to just let people know that I’m human, I love people, I love love, I’m passionate about things, and I’m passionate about being better and growing.
This is far from the first time that Bieber has made a public apology for his actions, but it seems like this is the first time he is fully addressing his bad boy behavior as a whole. And his most recent appearance on the Ellen show picked up nearly 5 million views online, so obviously people are interested in what he has to say. This is the second time Bieber's appeared on Ellen recently. He just made a scheduled appearance on the show a week ago to talk about why he wants to be roasted for his behavior.
A good thing for Bieber to keep in mind at this point is that actions speak louder than words. It's easy to say that you want a change in your life and how you're perceived; it's much harder to put those words into action. After all, Bieber's public image has been in a steady decline in the past few years the midst of his alleged drug use, getting arrested for a DUI, being involved in physical altercations, and making numerous controversial statements. But now, so far it seems like Bieber has been trying to improve his actions and reputation — so far.
As seen in the tweet above, Bieber has recently helped donate items to an auction for an Ontario-based charity. He also has made a surprise appearance on The Doctors TV show to personally meet a burn victim who survived a home explosion. That being said, the singer has always been involved in charitable events and activities, so it's hard to say if these gestures alone signal a change.
Aside from providing generous gestures to others, Bieber has been working on some new music. On Jan. 28, he teased a snippet from a new song on his Instagram to his 22 million followers, and a new album and tour is set to happen sometime in 2015.
At first glance, these actions do appear to be positive, but it is worth being somewhat skeptical about them. On one hand, he did say sorry, but on the other hand, he has quite a bit to be sorry for. Plus, the apology is rather recent, and it's safe to say that people are usually on their best behavior following an apology. We will have to stay tuned to see if these changes are actually long lasting or if he falls back into his old ways again.
